Gillian Jacobs cast in Amblin horror Larry

Gillian Jacobs has joined the cast of Jacob Chase’s horror Larry

Jacob Chase’s upcoming horror-thriller Larry has found a star in Gillian Jacobs (LoveCommunity), reports THR.

Child actor Azhy Robertson (Juliet, NakedThe Americans) is also starring alongside her. The film is set to be a two-hander in the vein of Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense.

Larry is being written and directed by Chase (The Four-Faced Liar), and is based on his short film of the same name (which you can watch on Vimeo).

The film will revolve around “a troubled young boy (Robertson) and his family who become the target of a monster that materialised through electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.”

The Picture Company’s Alex Heineman and Andrew Rona are producing. Production is set to start this October in Toronto.
